The former West Indies international James Clive Adams simply known as Jimmy Adams has been offered the role of director of cricket for the West Indies.


It was understood that the former Wes Indies captain Jimmy Adams has originally applied for the position of head coach of the West Indies cricket team.

But according to the latest report Adams was invited to consider the director of cricket role by the West Indies Cricket Board and he is now understood to have accepted the job but is currently negotiating some details with the WICB and has not yet signed a contract.


Adams will replace the English born cricket coach Richard Pybus who has been in the position since November 2013, who’s initial contract was for a period of three years and was due to expire late last year.

But the role of head coach remains vacant. While rumors continue to link Stuart Law with the position, it would be a surprise if any appointment is made before Adams' elevation is confirmed.
